It's that transition time between seasons, making it a perfect time to catch the end of the spring plants and the beginning of the summer plants! Wander the biodiverse habitats of High Pastures in Burnsville, NC, with Botanist, Herbalist, and Forager, Abby Artemisia. We'll walk through open, sunny areas (a great place to get to know common weeds), woodland, and you'll even get to check out a little waterfall!
You'll learn how to identify wild edibles and herbs, along with how to process and preserve them.
Abby will also have her book, The Herbal Handbook for Homesteaders, and her Appalachian herbal wildcrafted products for sale.
